Alise joint venture (JV) has secured a contract valued at €71m to implement the electrical infrastructure of Grand Paris Express Line 15 South.

The JV is led by VINCI Energies through its subsidiary SDEL Transport Grands Projets, in collaboration with Eiffage Énergie Systèmes.

The 15 South Metro Line will be 33km long and connect 22 municipalities in four administrative departments in France, with 18 new stations between Pont de Sèvres and Noisy-Champs.

The deal will implement 20kV network electrical architecture from the ten Enedis supply substations in France, which will distribute electricity in the Line 15 South tunnels, stations and structures to the 250 low-voltage distribution boards.

“Axians Rail Ile-de-France (VINCI Energies) will also roll out the optical infrastructure of the Line 15 South multi-service data transmission network.”

In a statement, VINCI said: “Within the joint venture, Axians Rail Ile-de-France (VINCI Energies) will also roll out the optical infrastructure of the Line 15 South multi-service data transmission network.

“Eiffage Énergie Systèmes Clemessy will provide electrical architecture design and implementation support for the Alise joint venture.

“The contract also covers the installations that help ensure passenger, rail tunnel and station safety (lighting, emergency service electrical outlets and telephone system, temperature rise sensors).”

The 70-month contract is estimated to provide 2,000 hours of training and 10,000 hours of work.

A waste treatment policy and an Environmental Protection Plan will be put in place to reduce the project’s impact on the environment.
